Hi guys ... just looking for some confirmation. The issue is plug welding 50 year old sheet metal to new panels. From what I've learned online, the best method is to drill the holes in the new metal, assuming same thickness. For mismatched thickness situations, drill the holes in the thicker metal. Correct? Thanks
I do it the other way, drill the holes in the thinner gauge, weld to the thicker gauge, you're less likely to burn through the thicker metal. Just my 2 cents.
